Which logo for Sound Collector??!!





As earlier posted on this blog and several other MixedSpecies media outlets, we are starting a new project based on sound collection and sampling. (creatively titled Sound Collector) We've set up a voicemail line for all of our Cult of Mixed Species minions to call in and let us know what's on their minds.

Will we turn them into another Mixed Species one-hit-wonder ala Moustache, into a Mystery Science Theateresque weekly podcast or immortalize your words on refridgerator magnets we don't know. Hell, there's a good chance one of us will get what every you say tattoo'd in a special place.

We've worked ever so intimately once again with our good friend Mike Fairchild aka Mike Fairchild to come up with three different logos for this project. Which one should we choose? Leave us some feedback love and we'll be eternally grateful!

Have Fun!

they're all excellent, really. i have to say my favorite is the middle logo, the electric brain.

your project sounds intriguing, to say the least. i'll keep my eye on you wacky kids.

The first, ant w/satellite, is a strong graphic and I liked the album cover feeling it had. The second is a very cool collage and would make for a great print in larger formats (t-shirts/posters) but might not be that effective in a small icon-would lose too much of the detail. My favorite is the phone. It has a strong graphic quality- the phone has kind of a "Power To The People" fist-like thrust and I can see this as a fairly simple stencil for guerilla style applications. They will never know what hit them! --CZ

definitely the phone.

Lovin' the feedback. Thank you all! This feedback is so good it makes us double check feedback we leave for others!

The second one is the awesomestest and my favoritestest, but I suppose the last one is sharper and more logical and obvious what it is.

You do realize you're creating the ultimate drunk-dial line. Like, when anybody is in the mood to drunk-dial, your line should be on speed-dial. Maybe invent a breathalyzer contraption that automatically calls your number if people are blathering over a 0.1 into their iPhones. There's an "app" for everything else (including some weird panflute thing my friend was showing me), I say this is the next logical step.

I look forward to calling you crying,
Jill

JillHannah - if we attached a breathalizer app it would only work if you blowing higher than .12!

Probably not a good idea ....

Definitely the middle man. Did somebody say it's a seventh grade science project gone wrong? cuz that's what's stuck in my head. good luck and I do so love to blab so I may be on your machine soon1

I vote the first one, he's all spy lookin. Just very cool.

The Ant. He looks all upcycled fair trade and shovel ready like in an environmentally friendly, sustainable, green kind of way. At the end of the day, it's all about the merchandising buzzwords. Ain't it???

All three are very cool, but I like the phone best. For some reason, my brain keeps reading the first one as Squad Collector -- strange. The 2nd one, although very cool, might be a little too busy for a logo. I agree that it would be great on posters or T's though. The third is to the point and easily recognizable.

Definitely the second one!
